Greetings, friends! It's been a busy month with not a lot to report, but I wanted to take the time to blog about this important topic. This weekend, a group of bloggers is coming together in hopes of educating people about the dangers of homophobia. I'm going to ask you to think bigger than this weekend. Think about real change, real progress to secure civil rights for all US citizens.
I believe this single topic will drive the presidential election.
I am not going to debate the merits of any political party. For me, the conversation is not about Fox versus CNN. These types of arguments are merely distractions and you will increasingly see people trying to divert the conversation from the real issue by stirring shit between the Conservatives and Liberals, Republican and Democrats, Doms and subs...wait. Okay, maybe not the last one.
My challenge to you is to consider whether you can set aside politically charged rhetoric and engage with people of all political, religious, and personal beliefs in order to focus on the single issue of gay rights.
All right, so what are we going to do? Tell me what positive action you're willing to take in the next six months that promotes the rights of the GLBTQ Community.
Post your response here on my blog this weekend in honor of the International Day Against Homophobia
All of you who respond with a positive action you're willing to take to promote the rights of the GLBTQ community will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Gift Card for All Romance eBooks.
